It seems that every time a new high-performance NBA player comes, people ask the same question. – Is this guy the next Michael Jordan? Everyone wants to see another MJ, and since retiring, we've heard the mantra over and over again.
In the 1990s, Harold Miner was the first dunk contest to win. People were also called "Baby Jordan". Then later in the decade was Kobe Bryant. Bryant's game was similar to Jordan in many respects, and their height and physical structure were very similar. In a sense it seemed that Kobe emulated Jordan's game, many believed that Kobe was the "next Michael Jordan".
Recently, LeBron James, and even Kevin Durant to a certain degree. Everyone wants to see another Jordan, but so far no one has fit in with the results, many people have wondered if Michael Jordan will be there again.
The truth is, Michael Jordan was a very special player. It may be a once-in-a-lifetime feeling that we can hear baseball fans talk about when they mention the effect of Babe Ruth.
At the end of the day, there will never be another Jordan for one reason. Jordan was your kind of player and although other players might be as good as he (or better), they themselves, with their own style of play and their qualities. Jordan is Jordan and they will be themselves.
